KTM introduced revised versions of its naked 390 Duke and 1290 Super Duke R at EICMA in Milan, Italy on November 8. Building off the success of the adventure range released in Cologne, Germany last month, KTM continues to increase the versatility and performance of each individual bike, ensuring that everybody is able to find just the right KTM for their specific requirements.
KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R – THE BEAST 2.0 – NOTHING BUT THE BEST
Every part was reconsidered to perform on and off the racetrack for a truly READY TO RACE motorcycle. The innovative construction of the new LED headlight ensures that no unnecessary additional parts or weight are added. The new multifunctional TFT-dashboard displays all important information in a clear and bright display. A tremendous power-to-weight ratio ensures a dominating performance in any situation. The 1290 SUPER DUKE R now bristles with more power thanks to reworked cylinder head and intake, while new electronic features allow for class-leading rideability and convenience.
KTM 390 DUKE – CORNER ROCKET
New, aggressive styling proclaims that the 390 DUKE is a READY TO RACE naked motorcycle with the performance and handling to back it up. The bodywork is sharp and modern with a slammed, predatory stance. Up front, a new LED headlight and bright, full-color TFT digital dash boast features not found in this class of motorcycle. At the rear, an exposed bolt-on subframe sits below the redesigned seat and pillion. A new form-fitting 3.5-gallon steel fuel tank increases the 390 DUKE’s range. Putting the power to the ground is now smoother and more controllable than ever before thanks to the new ride-by-wire throttle. That power, combined with a steel trellis frame, a new 43 mm WP upside-down fork and a larger, more powerful 320 mm front brake rotor take the ride to the next level.
